Breast cancer survivors are invited to participate in Baptist Health Paducah’s annual Pink Glove Dance video.
Survivors are invited to the filming at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday behind the Baptist Heart Center, near 24th Street. They will be joined by some of Paducah’s finest, as police officers, firefighters and paramedics dance alongside Baptist doctors and nurses.
This is the fourth year Baptist Health has participated in the national contest, which reminds women to get annual mammograms for early detection of breast cancer.
“We are thankful to our public safety workers for partnering with us this year on the video,” said Bonnie Schrock, Baptist Health Paducah chief operating officer. “We are excited to show the country how our hospital teams with dedicated emergency workers daily in providing for the health and well-being of our community.”
The hospital’s video has placed in the nation’s Top 8 each of the past three years. The top winners earn cash prizes for breast cancer charities, so Baptist Health Paducah asks for votes to support the Kentucky Cancer Program’s Horses and Hope breast cancer education program. Vote once daily Sept. 9-23 at PinkGloveDance.com.
Also, to enter the contest, Baptist Health must raise $2,000 for its charity, the Your Fight Fund, which benefits local cancer patients and services.Donations can be sent to Baptist Health Foundation Paducah, c/o Pink Glove 2014, 2501 Kentucky Ave., Paducah, KY 42003.
